I bet whatever you shoot would look pretty retro with super-8.

I second that!

There's a very low-budget feature film made a few years ago called "Frankensteins Bloody Nightmare" that was shot on Super 8 Kodachrome (just before Kodak killed off Kodachrome), and it looks pretty cool and retro. It has some of the look of a 1960s or 70s grindhouse horror film. Not a great film, but worth checking out. I think the trailer is available online or on YouTube. New copies of the film on DVD are available from Amazon Marketplace sellers for a few bucks. I found the film somewhat inspiring, it reminded me of the old days of making Super 8 films.

I think I have that one on my Netflix list. I'll be checking it out soon. BTW, have you seen "The Dead Next Door"? Same story.

I've heard of that one but haven't seen it.
